stuck in limbo

Hi my name is Justin. On the 30th of November 2013, I suffered full thickness burns ( 3rd degree burns ) to my whole left hand and half of my right hand from an hot oil fire at home. I cashed in all my annual leave and personal leave from work to help survive. I was able to receive two government payments once my personal finances ran out. The problem is that to continue to receive government support a doctor has to deem me unfit for work. I was signed off as fit for work on the 4th of February 2014. My employer has decided to not allow me back to work for another 6 weeks as they feel they cannot guarantee the safety of my hands. I understand my employer making that call but it does not help me financially. I can no longer receive government support because a doctor has deemed me fit for work. Hence I am stuck in Limbo. I ask for any donations anyone can offer to help pay rent,bills and daily living expenses. I also have a child support commitment and a 4 year old that I take care of 3-4 days a week. Please help.
